The #1 Thing You Can Do Is To Find A Job You Love…
A few weeks ago I let everyone know that I received a promotion at my company. I am no longer working in marketing sales, but have been promoted to more of a sales training position. The great thing about my job now is I am still able to work in the field calling on clients, but now I do it with other reps helping them fine-tune their skills.
Here’s the great thing about my career…I LOVE IT!
When you work in marketing you are constantly chasing the next new client which doesn’t leave a lot of time for celebrating victories. In my new role I am able to help account execs improve their skill set and seeing them find new success is incredibly rewarding for me. Yesterday one of the reps smiled after getting 2 new appointments via cold calling and her excitement added fuel to my fire.
My job does require quite a bit of travel, but I am adjusting to the change. The toughest thing is balancing my new eating regimen while I’m on the road. So to help me with this, I have bought a nice cooler which I take with me to carry my essentials like vegan, GF mayo and mustard, chicken breast, my bread, GF cereal, veggie chips, etc. This way I can make sandwiches for lunch and take with me to each property.
All-in-all things are coming along and I am loving it. I have always said there is not enough time in life to work a job you hate and I still believe it. If you hate your job, why put yourself through that torture? I understand some people work jobs they hate because of the money, but there are other companies that pay equal to that you might like.
Don’t sell yourself short. If you hate your job, then update your resume and find a company for which you can enjoy working. Sometimes we trap ourselves in thinking we can’t do better; and that simply isn’t true.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
